Maybe Bog River/Hitchens Pond? A short trip won't get you anywhere near Lows but it's still a nice enough area to spend a few hours. Plus it's a motor-free body of water.

I googled "oar rests" and I found a few options. None looked perfect for any and every situation, but you might be able to find something that works for you.

They were flowing alright. Water availability was pretty decent overall, but everything was visibly drying out. We were told no campfires when we called and asked prior to our trip, and when we got...

I'll definitely ditto the tarp recommendations. For group trips I always haul a big hardware store tarp into the woods with me- I think mine is 12'x15'. I find it to be well worth the added weight;...

I think this is a good choice. FWIW, if an adult with no prior backcountry experience came to me and said, "I want you to take me on an overnight backcountry canoe trip," I'd still probably pick a...

Honestly... all things considered, especially the kid factor, it seems like your plans might be a bit ambitious. The combination of portaging (with a family's worth of less than lightweight gear),...

Just got back from this trip last night. Was epic and amazing. Parts of the Loyalsock Trail feel as if it is straight out of Lord of the Rings. Definitely one of my favorite PA trails.

Yeah, Spuytenduivel is a neat area. The narrow valley feels wild and remote, more so than much of the rest of the Pharaoh Lake Wilderness. There is a single designated tent site on the brook right...
